River Island appeared to find it’s niche amongst the more fashion conscious chav, but this S/S and partly in A/W 08 River Island has produced some pieces which the fashion-forward amongst us can wear. Infamous for it’s terrible way of splattering numbering and barcodes all over perfectly good garments, River Island has never been one for minimalism but there selection this season contains a few gems. I bought the black and grey version of this t-shirt (a complete rip off of this All Saints one from SS08) and it’s served me very well. Bought in a large, it is actually an awesome fit because it has such a boxy shape, you can wear it oversized without it looking like a nightie. The shorts will look good turned up a notch or two and I still think canvas boaters are one of the most versatile shoes of this season.

The shops are going into mid season sales, and amongst the vast ammounts of shite, there are some good bargains to be had. Here is my picks.

Jumper by Junk De Luxe £84 £42

This fair isle knit is the only thing I could ever imagine wanting from River Island and I mangaged to snap it up half price the other day. Creates an easy slouchy look and is warm and comfortable. What more do you want?
Hoodie by River Island £34 £17

I actually cannot believ what a steal these are. Yes, I did have to suffer by going on the Burton website. But waht a bargain! Plus no cool people will have a clue where they’re from.
Brogues by Burton £50 £20
